Thermal Conductivity Testing, also known as Formation Thermal Conductivity, is a testing method that provides the geothermal system designer site-specific information on the thermal conductivity and diffusivity of the area in which the system will be installed. The benefits of using this method include: -More accurate installation and material cost estimates -Test parameters that can
